"Week of Peeks"

Good Morning!! Are you ready for some fun??? Well, this morning starts our "Week of Peeks" at 2RedBananas. Last month was so much fun, we're ready to do it again :)

We are going to do the blog hop just a little differently this month, we wanted to change it up a bit :) We have 9, yes 9 new sets that we will be releasing on March 2nd, and we will show you sneak peeks of each of them before the week is up!

Our blog hop this month involves a challenge for you. We would love for you to play along for chance to win your choice of one of the new releases! It’s an inspiration challenge. Here’s what you do… during the week, you stop by our blogs and check out the sneak peeks. Then you choose any three things from any three projects and create your own. It can be a card, a layout, an altered item…whatever. For example, you may use a layout from one persons card, colors from another, and a certain embellishment from another.

Just post your project to your blog or SCS and tell us in your description where you pulled your three inspirations from. For instance, Jami's layout from her Wrapped in His Love card, Maraya's color combo from "Gunther's Greetings" (wondering what that one is yet :) and the ribbon treatment that Deb used on her "Just Ducky" ( just another name to tease you :) card. Then come back to the 2RedBananas blog and give us a link to your project using Mr Linky at the bottom of this post. (If you upload to SCS, be sure to add 2RedBananas as a keyword)

You can enter as many times as you like!! On Monday March 2nd at 4:00 pm EST/3pm CST the challenge will close and we will choose 2 winners. Both winners can take their pick from the new releases. If there are lots of entries, we just may have to choose more than 2 winners, so be sure to tell your friends to come play along too.
Now for today's Sneak Peeks. Jami, Deb and Jeanette have all made projects using the "Wrapped in His Love" stamp set designed by Jami Bova. It's a FABULOUS set that you will use for many things! I love love love Jami's talents! She is amazing! On a sidenote, for those of you who do SCS challenges or those who would like to start, Jami is the featured stamper for the Sunday challenge!! Woo Hoo, congrats Jami!!

Okay, go check out the sneak peeks and remember there will be new projects daily so check back often.

We also have added MANY new products to the 2RedBananas store. There is a new category called "What's New at 2RedBananas" so it's easier to find the new stuff :)

Enjoy blog hopping with us and we can't wait to see your creations!

And...check it out...we're using Mr Linky. So now it couldn't be easier for us to see your wonderful creations. Please leave us a direct link to the post with your project (not just to your blog in general). We'd love to get a comment from you too...but your challenge entry must use Mr Linky. Thanks.


  1. what a fun idea jeannette! love it and can't wait to play along!

  2. I think I've done this right. I had fun looking at all the projects so far.

  3. Here are my inspiration details:

    1. The brown with light blue color combo: from Jami's "Wrapped in His Love" card

    2. Sentiment in a joined up typeface to make it look informal, almost as if handwritten: from Maraya's "Just hoppin' by..." card (Sneak Peak day 7)

    3. My curly embellishment: The curly kite rope on Jeanette"s "March Journalling Spot card" of Tue Feb 24.

    Thanks, CraftyAggy
